Businesses named after their location can convey a sense of local pride and an ingrained connection to the community, a great idea unless you're coordinating a monster truck rally in Boring, OR. Adopting a hood's name to deliver it food and hooch, Buckhead Bar and Grill
Giving the former Locos Grill & Pub a full face-lift, BB&G is Buckhead's newest sports bar-n-grill, serving snacks, sammies, burgers, and more to accompany your preferred beverage(s), with 130+ seats split between an interior of fresh-laid hardwood floors, 8 flat screens, and a dark polished-wood bar, plus a long, L-shaped outdoor patio facing Peachtree Road with four wall-mounted box TVs, who never get into two-pieces around the flat screens. The menu leads off with an abundance of standard bar-snackables (an effort to retain the notoriously cholesterol-dedicated UGA Alumni who watched games at the old joint), from smaller bites like batter-fried Buffalo Shrimp served w/ jalapeño ranch, and the Dip Trio (bottomless tortilla chips w/ white queso, Jack's Chili, & fresh salsa), to fuller fare including Premium Hot Dogs with all the trimmings, hand-breaded Chicken Tender Baskets (w/ choice of side: pasta salad, black beans, cheese fries), and Buckhead Wings in flavors like Hawaiian Island, Hot Honey, and Lemon Island, which is also where you bought your Taurus. Sandwiches get more inventive, including the grilled, blackened, or fried Grouper, Austin's Pork Chop (battered & fried, on a toasted Kaiser roll), and 1/2lb burgers (eg, Peachtree, w/ thick cut bacon, housemade BBQ sauce, & cheddar jack); the entree department's got tropically tweaked meals like the 12oz marbled Island Ribeye (marinated in a special blend of teriyaki, pineapple, and spices), or its surfy cousin: Teriyaki-Pineapple Salmon, glazed in the same sauce and topped with a grilled pineapple ring, the gift traditionally given on one's final anniversary
The full bar's got copious bottled action (Session, Long Hammer, Warsteiner), plus 23 taps like Strongbow, Dominion, and PBR, as well as seasonal selections like Sam Adams Octoberfest, Terrapin Sunray Wheat, and four Sweetwaters: IPA, 420, Blue, and Motorboat -- sure to be an instant favorite if it ever arrives in Foreplay, PA.
